PC Enclosure ? Just For Plants?
Computer system Housing Not Just For Manufacturing units
A Computer system case is one of the first lines of defence to shield the computer hardware from most forms of attack, including fortification from actual physical attack, hackers and filth.
Let us look at a Computer system enclosure.
These units are on the market in polycarbonate even though the higher quality products are produced from heavy gauge steel sheet metal that is welded and formed to present a sort of sanctuary for the computer, screen and keyboard. With all the doors secured the only way in is being the key holder, unless you intend in breaking into the pc enclosure, this was very common around a decade ago when the cost of computer memory was so high and an easy victim for thieves.
But seeing that the worth for the RAM is so low, it is not worth the threat, so what other functions could a Computer enclosure be used for? Well not surprisingly the first one is in a plant to provide defense from the dust, dirt and fluid that is existing on every production floor.
When a criminal is taken to a police station to be processed there is an area where the prisoner enters their own details, although when some criminals are high on drugs or drink they can get violent and for example try and push the computer and display off a table onto the flooring, storing the devices into a Computer enclosure protects them from all elements of abuse, as the housing is bolted to the desk and the desk is fastened to the floor.
Well if an individual told you farmers where using PC enclosures to secure their devices in the collection buildings for their vegetation you would think it was farfetched, still they are monitoring how the produce is and how long it takes to harvest it, in the hope of making it a more slick operation and increase earnings.
An excellent Computer system enclosure comes complete with a thermostatic controlled thermal management unit, or else the cooling system will be on 24 hours per day, if the production works on a 24×7 basis resulting in high and not environment friendly cooling bills.
Some suppliers offer an industrial keyboard so that information can be entered even whilst the operator is wearing gloves, this reduces time and increases profit on the manufacturing line.
A common subject here is that apart from protecting the computer devices they also offer cost reduction measures, this is ideal in a production factory as every minute can be applied to earn money for the plant owner.
Not limited to pcs, there are also printer housings, these permit standard inkjet and laser printers to be deployed in areas thought too hazardous previously, these then provide a whole solution for all the equipment, whilst minimising production down time as well as costs for the hardware, as industrial pcs are around ten times the cost of a standard Computer and when a issue occurs it can be days before an engineer can come to site to re-configure the industrial pc.
